According to the charter officers of PhilRES, the Philippine Institute of Real Estate Practitioners (PHILRES) was formed by Incumbent Presidents, Chairmen of the Board, representatives of Govt Assessors, Govt appraisers of various GOCCs and GFIs, and other Officers of at least 23 Real Estate Service Organizations duly existing under the laws of the Republic of the Philippines.
PhilRES claim that they are leaders of the real estate industry who met last May 6, 2010 as a Convenors Group and formed the PHILIPPINE INSTITUTE of REAL ESTATE SERVICE PROFESSIONALS preparatory to their formal application & recognition as a National Integrated Association of Real Estate Service Practitioners by the Professional Board of Real Estate Service and their formal registration and incorporation with the SEC.
PhilRES claim that they are a positive defining moment in Philippine real estate history.

ME: Do you believe in my statement that even as of today, the INTEGRATED Professional Organization of Real Estate Practitioners does not exist yet? [YES or NO]
ME: Does PhilRES claim that it is the INTEGRATED Professional Organization of Real Estate Practitioners? [YES or NO]. If YES, who are the names of those PhilRES incorporators who believe in this claim? [STAND and be recognized]

ME: Are you aware that HLURB charges P1,010 for every complain you may lodge against each colorum project agent?
ME: Credibility-wise, has any charter member of the PhilRES ever experienced filing a complain against colorum real estate agents?
ME: What is the difference between "National Integrated Association of Real Estate Service Practitioners" compared to "Integrated Professional Organization of Real Estate Service Practitioners"?
ME: In terms of "character", what is the barrier that prevents the INTEGRATION of the incorporators of PhilRES and FRESA? What is your comment if I say that I see a selfishly motivated squabble for accreditation at the expense of integration?
ME: Did you incorporated PhilRES in your capacity as individuals or in exercise of your official representation as incumbent president, chairman of the board, or sector representative of each of your organization?
ME: By the way, just curious, why did you call it an "Institute"?
Rico Sevilla: Institute as in "school". It aims to teach, train and upgrade its members among others.
ME: If it will cater to its members only, why don't you register it as a Cooperative or Non-Stock Savings and Load Association so that your income generating activities will be exempted from income taxes?
QUESTION: What can you say about Federation of Real Estate Service Association (FRESA)?
RICO SEVILLA: 3 SIMPLE REASONS THAT DOOMED FRESA
The reasons that doomed FRESA are quite simple.
1. It advocated a composition of an APO that is antithetically and contrary to the position of the PRB-RES and the PRC it is applying to as an APO.
2. It failed to formally incorporate itself as a juridical entity as
required by PRC rules (a violation of law).
There are different versions of why FRESA failed to incorporate itself, the most often cited reason of which is allegedly due to a "common perceived distrust of one or two personalities" in the group.
3. Its own formation was self-limiting. Fresa was designed to be automatically dis-accredited upon the accreditation by PRB-RES and approval by the PRC of an APO.
Meaning that it could not transform itself later as an APO as it would violate the terms and conditions of its own creation. So in essence, in my humble opinion, FRESA was still-born.
